DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A man was found shot to death outside of the JW Marriott hotel on Olympic Boulevard in downtown Los Angeles, police say.

Investigators tell Eyewitness News they received a call about a shooting at the hotel just before 5 a.m. Tuesday.

The victim, who is believed to be about 20 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the suspects fled in a white SUV, though details regarding an exact make and model were not immediately released.
